  • Five Most Widely Held Small-Caps Among the Gurus

    While small-cap stocks can certainly be more volatile and risky than investing in larger or blue chip companies, there are several advantages to investing in small-caps. These companies have more room for growth than industry stalwarts, and many mutual funds don’t invest in them due to heavy SEC regulations.

    But perhaps the most important advantage is the lack of analyst coverage, which means small caps are more likely to be improperly priced.


  • Avon, Energizer Top List of Most Widely-Held Mid-Caps

    While large and small caps often receive the most attention in the market, mid-cap stocks (those with a capitalization between $2-10 billion), can be thought of as the “Goldilocks” of stocks — less volatile than small caps, but more room for growth than large caps.

    In the spring newsletter, Baron Asset Fund Portfolio Manager Andrew Peck echoed this idea, writing that mid-caps offer compelling opportunities in today’s volatile markets.

  • Mario Gabelli Comments on Kraft Foods Group Inc

    Kraft Foods Group Inc. (0.2%) (KRFT – $87.12 – NASDAQ), based in Northfield, Illinois, is the North American grocery business of Kraft Foods Inc., which was separated through a tax-free spin-off to shareholders on October 1, 2012. As a result, shareholders received one share of Kraft Foods Group Inc. for every three shares of Kraft Foods Inc. common stock, which was subsequently renamed Mondelēz International Inc. (0.5%). Kraft Foods Group is comprised of the North American grocery operations, excluding the snack businesses, which generated approximately $18.2 billion of revenue from leading brands such as Maxwell House coffee, Oscar Mayer meats, Jell-O desserts, Cool Whip toppings, and Cracker Barrel, Kraft, Polly-O, and Velveeta cheeses. On March 25, 2015, the H.J. Heinz Company and Kraft signed a definitive agreement to merge and form the Kraft Heinz Company. Accordingly, shareholders of Kraft will receive a $16.50 per share special dividend and 49% ownership of the newly formed company, which will be the third largest food and beverage company in North America and the fifth largest globally. The remaining 51% will be owned by current Heinz shareholders, 3G Capital, and Berkshire Hathaway.

(0.5%) (XLS – $24.37 – NYSE) is a leader in C4 (command, control, communications, computers) and ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) products and information and technical services. The company provides mission critical systems in integrated electronic warfare, sensing and surveillance, air traffic management, information and cyber security, and networked communications. Products in the Information and Technical Services segment include large scale ground communication networks for NASA and the DOD, national intelligence defense against chemical, biological, and explosive threats, space ground and range systems for U.S. military launch, logistics, and base operations to the armed forces, and air traffic control management. On February 6, 2015, XLS announced a definitive agreement under which Harris Corp. will acquire the company in a cash and stock transaction valued at about $24.70 per share. Under the terms of the deal, XLS shareholders will receive $16.625 in cash and 0.1025 of a share of Harris common stock. Based on the Harris closing price of $78.70 per share and including the $140 million of XLS net debt and underfunded pension liability of $2.1 billion, Harris is paying about $6.8 billion for XLS. The transaction EBITDA multiple of 12.6x (XLS estimated 2015 EBITDA is $540 million) is in line with the industry’s deals. The deal is expected to close in June 2015 and is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory and XLS shareholder approval.

  • Mario Gabelli Comments on AMETEK Inc

    AMETEK Inc. (1.7% of net assets as of March 31, 2015) (AME – $52.54 – NYSE) is a leading global manufacturer of analytical instruments for the process, aerospace, and industrial markets, and a leading producer of electric motors and blowers for the floor care and outdoor power equipment markets. In the near term, the company continues to experience growth in its longer cycle businesses in the aerospace, power generation, and process industries. Longer term, the company continues to make acquisitions to augment growth. In 2015, AMETEK expects one half to two thirds of its revenue growth to come from acquisitions. The company is focused on acquiring differentiated businesses with revenues of $150-$300 million. The company expects to spend ~$1 billion on acquisitions this year. AMETEK also decided to moderate its investment into the Floorcare and Specialty Motors end market within the Electromechanical Group; we believe the segment may be a prime spin-off candidate.
